What is Field Value?

Field Value (FV) is the fielding rating for Stat Geek Baseball's New Player Rating value.  This rating is given to each player at each position they play during the season with over1 inning played per max games (162) at that position, as well as a total fielding rating given to a player for each season for players who played more than one position.  A minimum grade is given per position to any player with under162 innings played.

Each position has different maximum, average, and minimum rating values per the difficulty and value of that position, which folds into the overall value of PEVA for that season.

FV Scale Maximums
 Catcher - 2.10
Shortstop - 1.75
Outfield - 1.70
Third Base - 1.70
Second Base - 1.50
First Base - 1.40
